it is doable. whether that means it's going to get done is another question. and speaker boehner is in a delicate position. he would like to e get something done, but he's got an unruly boisterous caucus to be managing. >> i heard from a senator that he's going to need to bring in eric cantor somehow. he's going to have to enlist him if it's going to get done. we did get the preview yesterday. what's the president's strategy going to be? does he need to set an agenda for how to move forward? >> he's going to speak in generalities. he's not going to lay out a detailed, here's what i want to do five-point plan. i think that's smart. the best approach is to work this through congress with the white house being involved as well. take it as a patient process. >> let me play a little more from chuck schumer talking about john boehner's position. >> boehner wants to compromise. that's why he gave that speech. he's not a hard right guy. he's a mainstream conservative. >> here's a suggestion in his column titled "let's not make a deal." mr. obama should hang tough declaring himself willin
that majority. i was encouraged to hear that speaker boehner agree that tax revenue has to be part of this equation. so i look forward to hearing his ideas when i see him next week. and let me make one final point that every american needs to hear. right now, if congress fails to come to an agreement on an overall deficit reduction package by the end of the year, everybody's taxes will automatically go up on january 1st. >> let's bring in our chief white house correspondent, jessica yellin. let's move the story a little bit. the president is going to on a trip overseas but he's got to get involved deeply in negotiation. his top aides will be meeting with the republicans on the hill. >> in the coming days the president has invited the leaders of the house and the senate, to talk about these negotiations and begin basically laying out where each side stands. right now what we know is that the major sticking point is over this tax rate for the top earners. the president as you just heard saying the tax rates for those making $250,000 and up must increase. house republicans making it c
john boehner and mc mcmcconnell are as good as we have. >>neil: well the president needs speaker boehner more than mcth connell --. bucky>>governor huckabee: both are seasoned washington insiders. the republicans in the senate and the republicans in the house of representatives have to trust and follow their leaders. that will be anathema to a lot of republicans. you cannot have 535 people all negotiating for their particular part of the pie. it can't work. >>neil: who gives? >>governor huckabee: everyone the that is how you govern. >>neil: they have never done that. >>governor huckabee: you have to. >>neil: the president is saying elections have consequences. is the consequence of this, sock the rich? >>governor huckabee: the consequences of the election, we have more governors that are republican, same house of representatives, same senate, same president. meet the new boss, same as the old boss, nothing has changed. what has to change rather than sitting down and starting at point of where they disagree, they need to sit down and start at the point of where they can agree to t
armageddon. i guess first signal came for john boehner who was open to revenues, by that, taxes, let the kabuki theater begin. >> it did. you know hours after president obama secured reelect, top congressional democrat, harry reid reaffirmed democrat tax agenda, those making more should pay more. >> people who make more than a million dollars a year, the vast majority of them are happy to pay that. only place that people disagree are republican in congress. >> reporter: he and democrats, namely the president, want a tax increase on families earning more than $250,000 a year, reed hemmed a series of votes this year on only income of more than a million dollars. meanwhile, house speaker john boehner unprompted said that republicans are willing to spam examine more tax revenue. >> for the purposes of forging a bipartisan agreement that begins to solve the problem, we're willing to accept new revenue under the right conditions, what matters is where the increased revenue comes from and what type of reform comes with it. >> reporter: those conditions broad-based individual tax reform, rep
with house speaker john boehner. to begin talks on how to prevent the country's economy from going over the so-called fiscal cliff. both boehner and snart majority leader harry reid sounded conciliatory notes yesterday. >> mr. president, this is your moment. we're ready to be led. not as democrats or republicans, but as americans. >> it's better to dance than to fight. it's better to work together. >> boehner even opened the door to raising new revenues, code for taxes, though not through tax rates. he does put on some conditions. >> in order to garner republican support for new revenues, the president must be willing to reduce spending and shore up entitlement programs that are the primary drivers of our debt. >> so that is a shift in a negotiating position. now boehner suggested temporarily extending the current tax rates, pushing serious negotiations on a broader tax deal into 2013. while the president has hinted in the past that he's willing to include the issues of social security and medicare in the fiscal negotiations, what's not clear is whether the rest of his party is going to
, john boehner, said quote, everything on the revenue side and on the sp spending side has to be looked at but when it comes to specifics he put the ball firmly in barack obama's court. >> i don't want to box myself in or anyone else in. i think it is important for us to come to an dpe agreement with the president but this is his opportunity to lead. >> here to sort what call of this must mean, we have all angles covered, including from the white house ahead of this daily briefing. we have jessica yellin, athena jones and ali velshi in new york. let me begin with you. we were watching the president walk in the east room. i noticed standing ovation. the energy in the room. the president pulled out his own pen saying yes, i'm ready to sign the bill flanked by marylandle class americans. when it comes to middle-clax tax cuts it sounds like the president is sticking to his guns. >> his terms are fairly stark. he's willing to negotiate on entitlements, medicare, medicaid. the white house democrats consider that a huge give the democratic party but what he is not willing to negotiate on is ra
that will automatically go into effect at the end of the year. speaker of the house john boehner opened the door yesterday to getting the deal done and striking a more conciliatory tone. >> mr. president, this is your moment. we're ready to be led, not as democrats or republicans, but as americans. we want you to lead, not as a liberal or a conservative, but as president of the united states of america. we want you to succeed. let's challenge ourselves to find the common ground that has eluded us. let's rise above the dysfunction and do the right thing together for our country. >> meantime, senate majority leader harry reid said he is open to working together too, but there was a but. >> i'm going to do everything within my power to be as conciliatory as possible. i want to work together. but i want everyone to also understand you can't push us around. we want to work together. >> let me bring in legendary investigative journalist carl bernstein and political reporter for "the washington post" nia ma malika henderson. good morning to you. everybody is sounding cordial, but we still have the same players.
cliff. what he wants is higher taxes for the top earners. and speaker boehner is already saying on that part of this deal, no-dice. >> racing tax rates is unacceptable. and it couldn't even pass the house. putting increased revenues through reforming the tax code, i would do that if the president were serious about solving our spending problem and trying to secure our entitlement programs. i'm confident he and i can find the common ground necessary. bill: that's the same potion had the weekend before the election. meanwhile there are strong warning the fiscal cliff could have dire consequences. lay out the stakes here. what are they? >> according to the congressional budget office, the bean counters in congress, they say recession. if you cut spending and raise taxes as is planned january 1 you get a recession and a 1.9% -- you get a 9.1% unemployment rate next year. the republicans are saying do not raise tax rates. the democrats are saying, president obama and harry reid are saying tax the rich, raise tax rates. this is all about tax rates. the democrats led by president obama
doors is a different story. john boehner doesn't have the leverage he used to have. on a conference call he told house republicans they had to avoid the nasty showdowns that mark so much of the last two years. senate republican leader mitch mcconnell was the number one obstructionist in the president's first term. now he tells "the wall street journal" he'll do whatever it takes to get a deal. i'd be willing to pay the ransom if e we thought we were going to get the hostage out. but the hostage is what? entitlement spending. mcconnell's intention, he's willing to agree to a dollar of new taxes for every dollar in cuts. what a difference an election makes. >> i'm going to ask a question on the stage. they seau had a real spending cuts deal, 10 to 1. spending cuts to tax inkrecreas. spooker, you're already shaking your head. but who on this stage would walk away from that deal? would you raise your hand about not raising taxes. >> remember in 2011 republicans would not take a 10 to 1 tax cut deal? now today mitch mcconnell is willing to do a 1 to 1 deal. republicans lost all of their lever
to tackle the impending fiscal cliff but the president and the speaker of the house john boehner each drawing lines that they say they will not cross. the major hurdles, that threat to send the economy into a tailspin, that's coming up next. >>> plus a nascar race turning into a full-scale brawl. look at this. mayhem breaking out of the everybody going at it. we'll tell you what set it off. after this. ve lately. but because of business people like you, things are beginning to get rolling. and regions is here to help. making it easier with the expertise and service to keep those wheels turning. from business loans to cash management, we want to be your partner moving forward. so switch to regions. and let's get going. together. jenna: well come back, everyone. now let's return to the economy. the president and house speaker john boehner are suggesting they are willing to compromise to prevent our economy from going over that so-called fiscal cliff but both sides are digging in their heels whether or not to race tax rates for the wealthy. rich edson of the fox business network watching
democrats and republicans stop it all. house speaker john boehner wants a deal on spending cuts. president obama says that is not enough. >> if we're serious about reducing the deficit we have to combine cuts with revenue. >> joining us is jonathan strong. even if tax rates went up on the wealthiest households earning more than $250,000 a year the president, as the president demands, this would actually do almost nothing to reduce the deficit. i look at the joint tax committee report of conscious saying it would reduce the deficit only by 7%. that is 7% out of $1.1 trillion. in many ways is the president's solution more of an illusion? >> he is trying to sell this as a matter of fairness. he seems to be making progress politically on that front. you have a good point. another good question, there isn't any theory this would help the economy. the estimates are it would hurt this the economy. is now the right time for that? people are still hurting out there. >> gregg: the president is claiming, you heard him say this -- he has a mandate for raising taxes. i'll quote him. he said on tuesday
to raising taxes on the rich? >> there's no question about it. john boehner was sounding, you know, like there might be some way to compromise on that issue. and i love bill crystal, what he had to say about it. who is somewhat of a leader of the more conservative branch of the republican party. so i'm optimistic. but we don't need all the republicans to go along. we need enough rational republicans and then the democrats can provide the rest of of the votes in we get a fair compromise. but anything less than fair that protects the middle class, the president has said he's not going to sign it. >> cynthia, the "new york times" reported on a conference call john boehner the speaker had and it's very interesting what tone he set and a gop senator. let me give you the quote p the quote from the "times" is that their party lost badly, mr. boehner said, they had to avoid the nasty showdowns that marked much of the last two years. members on the call subdued and dark, murmured words of support. that's interesting. and then you had senator bob corker, a key member of the banking committee, went
's deficit. meanwhile house speaker john boehner has already signaling his willingness to hammer out a budget deal in an exclusive interview with abc's diane sayer, boehner made it clear that he's not open to raising taxes, but he did express confidence he and the president could find some common ground. >>> sources tell abc news that talks are under way for a possible plea deal for congressman jesse jackson jr. the illinois democrat is currently being treated at the mayo clinic for bipolar disorder. the fbi is investigating jackson for improperly using campaign funds for personal purchases, potentially furniture at his home, but he coasted to victory tuesday, retaining his congressional seat, despite virtually no presence on the campaign trail. the only involvement, a robo call. had. voted since june 8. and missed every one of the 225 votes since. that goes to show his strong contingency there. >> absolutely. >>> a look at your friday forecast, a big storm in the rockies with blizzard conditions and up to 2 feet of snow in montana, idaho, utah. showers along the california coast. some light
to avert the looming fiscal cliff that we have talked so much about, house speaker john boehner was quick to express willingness to compromise, get the job done. boehner sat down for an exclusive interview with abc's diane sawyer. he said he is willing to listen to the president's proposals even if they clash with gop principles. but he was adamant that raising taxes is not an option. >> raising taxes on small business people is the wrong prescription given where our economy is. >> is it on the table to talk about? >> i made clear. >> wealthier americans pitch in here. >> raising tax rates is unacceptable. and frankly it couldn't even pass the house. putting increased revenues on the table, but through reforming our tax code, and i would do that if the president were serious about solving our spending problem and trying to secure our entitlement programs. i am confident that he and i can find the common ground necessary. >> that common ground may be tough to find because the president has already said he would veto any deal that does not allow tax cuts for the rich to expire. boehner says
the pipeline. mapped door budget cuts kick in in 54 days. house speaker john boehner says it is time for the president to lead. here he is is talking about that. >> mr. president, this is your moment. we're ready to be lead, not as democrats or republicans but americans. we want you to lead, not as a liberal or conservative but as president of the united states of america. we want you to succeed. bill: stuart varney, anchor of "varney & company", fox business network. the issues on the table are the same issues as monday. we want you to succeed by the way. what did you hear or what are you hearing based on the statements out of the washington now? >> three statements to listen to very carefully. speaker boehner, senate majority leader harry reid, and the big union boss, richard trumka. if you add them all together, tell you exactly what they said in a moment, add them all together the outlines of a deal would look like this. this is on the fiscal cliff. the outlines would possibly look like this. raise taxes, certainly raise tax revenues right now, beginning next year. promise to cut
of the white house at 1:05 eastern time. you can of course catch all of it right here on cnbc. john boehner is also scheduled to hold a you news conference today, as well. st. louis fed president james bullard is saying the u.s. economy is strengthening. but he's cautioning that leaders must tackle the looming fiscal cliff. a conversation we can't get away from. speaking in missouri yesterday, bullard also says he doubts the central bank will extend a bond maturity extension program that expires at the end of the year. bullard is not currently a voting member, but he will ebb in 2013. and china's national congress continues with new leaders for the communist party set to be named later this morning. today a rising star said the party is moving towards requiring officials to their their assets. so an interesting piece in the chinese business press this morning. >> we have been talking about the fiscal cliff and -- >> we have? >> and yesterday somebody tweeted a new drinking game. every time they say fiscal cliff, you drink. they're right, but it's absolutely what matters. >> look at the stoc
in taxes. i'm not going to do that. >> speaker john boehner, like wise, struck a tone and drawing a hard line saying everything is up for negotiation. >> clearly, the deficit is a drag on our economy. and we can't continue to spend money we don't have. i don't want to box myself in or anybody else in. i think it's important for us to come to an agreement for the president, but this is his opportunity to lead. >> the senate has already passed legislation that would raise taxes on those making more than $250,000 while preserving the bush tax cuts for the middle class. the latest now on tuesday's election. the president's margin of victory has now increased. he now has a 51% edge over romney in the national popular vote. that is up from a tie that we saw on election night. but down in florida, they are still counting the ballots. officials have until noon today to submit unofficial results to the secretary of state. cnn has yet to project a winner there, but with 97% of precincts reporting, president obama has a lead over romney. the romney campaign has conceded the race in florida. and for
speaker john boehner say they are ready to work together to keep the country from plunging off the so-called fiscal cliff. economists say the combination of tax hikes and spending cuts set to kick in at the end of the year could trigger another recession and higher unemployment. the president saying he has invited leaders of both parties to the white house next week to try to work out a deal. but he and the speaker still are sticking to their guns when it comes to it raising taxes on the richest americans. >> i'm not going to ask students and seniors and middle class families to pay down the entire deficit while people, like me, making over $250,000 aren't asked to pay a dime more in taxes. >> the problem with raising tax rates on the wealthiest americans is that more than half of them are small business owners. raising tax rates will slow down our ability to create the jobs that everyone says they want. >> harris: the white house says the president will veto any bill that extends tax cuts on incomes of more than $200,000. it is deja vu all over again, rich edson. he joins us from fox
't think so. john boehner laughing in the face that the leader of the republican party from here on out might be paul ryan. that guy? the republican party pick its new face, its new leader after their electoral disaster. that's going to be an amazing thing to watch. here's just a case in point. it was an overall electoral disaster for republicans to lose the presidency. it was thought to be impossible for them to lose the presidency. nobody since the great depression has been reelected as president with an unemployment rate like the one we have now. but barack obama manage d to do it. just take as a case in point. the tremendous republican disaster in the united states senate. i mean, they had a bad night on tuesday night. but in the senate, it was a sure bet that the republicans were supposed to retake control of the senate this year. a sure bet. they are only defending ten seats. not only did the republicans not retake the senate, the democrats held on to control and increased their margins. that's impossible. in a year like this. and the depth of that failure is bottomless. look at h
're just going to do whatever the president wants. i think john boehner was very clear that everything is on the table with respect to revenue reductions -- revenue increases as well as spending reductions, but there are certain things that aren't. and i think what john boehner said is right, we should not be increasing tax rates on businesses in america. so i think you're going to look at it from the standpoint of can we tighten the tax code, limit deductions? there are things we can do to simplify the code that will result in more revenue because it will result in more growth. i think republicans absolutely should put those things on the table and revenue certainly should be part of the deal. >> some people are blaming you for mitt romney's failure, and i'll explain to you why. >> i wish i had such power here that i could be blamed for these things. >> allow me to elaborate. what they're saying is if he hadn't been pushed into fairly right wing quite extreme positions in his battle against the likes of you early this year for the public nominee race, then he wouldn't have gotten hims
. it's good for america to see this. john boehner coming out today. harry reid as well. boehner said, we can't keep setting the bar that low. it is time we raise the bar. i loved what he said about we are ready to be led not as democrats or republicans, but as americans, not as a liberal or conservative, but as the president of the united states. >> that's the quote mark alluded to. you hope in light -- dual messages last night. the country overwhelmingly elected barack obama back to office. more democrats in the senate and the house. on the other side. popular vote very close. obama, up by 3 million votes. very close race. that was a message, not a mandate. so there is a middle ground that you hope they both seek out. because the electorate did send dual messages last night. >> one headline, the divided states of america. it is a little divided. we need some healing, neosporin and a band-aid. >>> yeah. asian stocks tumbled overnight after a steep drop on wall street. global investors are nervous about new forecasts that show slow slow economic growth in europe well into next year. b
mark co-rubio in the office and john boehner and say look guys, i'm running for election in two years. i want marco rubio here to find us a way out of this on policy. find us a version of the dream act that we can live with, that the president can sign. it doesn't havetor a majority vote of republicans. we can vote with democrats in the senate on this and boehner can let house republicans slide over and let it get through his chamber and pretend to oppose it and all that so that they get this issue out of their way. mark, when you listen to that math that michael steel mentioned, i don't see how the republican party can pretend to have a chance nationally four years from now. >> it can't. with these kind of numbers. and i think actually one of the good results of republicans losing is they're going to have to examine the reality here. and they're going to have to cut a deal on immigration. they need to because it's the right thing to do, but it's also politically will help. and i think it's going to take more than just rolling out somebody with a hispanic name, but there are a lot of
's possible with john boehner saying okay, we will get rid of some deductions that rich people enjoy that the president is now going to have his bluff called. i think is he going to get some tax increases on rich people, will he actually reform the entitlement spending? >> you are in charge, what is the compromise? >> well, i think the big part of the compromise, boehner has to get is the spending cuts have to happen now. people talk about this sequester and government spending might get cut. most of it is in the future. he has got to get in the hundreds of billions in year one to say we are actually turning this ship. >> james freeman from the "wall street journal" thanks for coming in with your expertise on. this thanks. good to be here. >> your tax dollars going to pay for sex change operations? what? we'll tell you where this just has been given the green light. >> then, it's been two weeks since super storm sandy and thousands of people are still in the dark this morning. they have been left freezing over these past weeks. so where is the help? our own brian kilmeade is going to
